Give It All You’ve Got!

Mark 12: 44 “For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.”

In the Bible, Jesus commended a woman for giving all she had, when others barely made a sacrifice. These days, the word sacrifice usually means giving up some comfort that we grown used to. Sacrifice, by definition, is the act of giving up something that you want to keep, in order to do something to help someone else.

This week, as we mark Remembrance Day, the word sacrifice has a much greater meaning. We honour those who gave their lives for freedom and those who continue to serve and protect. Their sacrifices, made for the greater good, should always be honoured and never be forgotten. Let us remember those who gave it all they had.
